Great facilities, clean! Always have park ranger services driving around to check on things. Beach was clean and the hiking trail was also clean. We had a guided tour which was really informative and interesting to my second grader. I love this place.

Stopped by the visitors center..very helpful staff. Walk out on the board walk to the over look of the beach. Tried the view finder/ binocular to check the surroundings. Beautiful.

This park has 2 main entrances, one is at 64th street and the other is off Shore Drive. There are a lot of dirt walking trails, of which one is paved, some are a mile long and others 10 miles or more. At the end of 64th street entrance there is a boat launch ramp, beach/fishing spot that over look broad bay and linkhorn bay. You can fish for speckled trout, puppy drum, spot and croaker and flounder, but you will need a salt water fishing license. There is a campground entrance on shore drive for tents and other campers on the Chesapeake Bay side of the park which has a great beach for kids (hardly any waves) also you can fish on the beach, across the street from the camp ground there are cabins you can rent. The campground can get full during the tourist season so plan ahead.

We spent a few days in Virginia Beach off season and were looking for somewhere besides the boardwalk to go for a walk. We accessed the trails from 64th street and there is parking just inside the park. We did not drive around to the main entrance/office so I cannot speak for that aspect. The trails are well marked and maintained. Off season, insects were not a problem but I imagine this is quite different in the summer. There is a beach overlooking the Chesapeake Bay but we did not go there.

I am from California, and had a few days to "kill" in the area -- this area had numerous trails all seemingly connected and looping around -- you could hike all day, or just an hour or anything in between. I did not really see any wildlife, but the swampy trees are great.
